Rooms & Suites

Celebrating the history and pedigree of this grande-dame, railway station hotel, bedrooms and suites at Principal York comfortably mix tradition and modernity. The majority of the rooms are in the main house, and the grandest of them look out across the gardens to York Minster in the distance.

Award winning interior architects Goddard Littlefair have refurbished the hotel rooms and public spaces to create 155 elegant, comfortable bedrooms and suites in balanced, neutral tones that offer more than just a place to sleep.

From 1st July 2024 all our bedrooms and suites will have climate control air conditioning within, allowing cool and warm air flows throughout the year.
